#MambaDay is only two days away as April 13th has become the day that we celebrate the legacy of Kobe Bryant. Nike will be taking it back (kind of) to celebrate this year as they’ll be dropping a special colorway of the revamped Nike Kobe 1 Protro.

Appropriately known as the Mamba Day colorway, two years after Mamba Day 2016, the Kobe 1 Protro brings technological innovation to the original Zoom Kobe 1 silhouette to create a model specifically engineered for enhanced performance. It is a testament to Kobe’s undying pursuit of perfection and the Mamba Mentality he’s instilled in athletes all over the world. “Mamba Day” pays respect to one of the game’s greatest players while honoring the intangible piece of Kobe that lives within every person. The shoe comes dominated by black all over the leather and suede upper with hits of Metallic Gold on the Swoosh logos, the Kobe logos on the tongue, and the “4.13.18” branding on the heel. The shoe will also come with special graphic insoles with a picture of Kobe Bryant walking away from the game.

The Nike Kobe 1 Protro Mamba Day drops on April 13th for a retail price of $175. Will you be trying to cop?
